I felt compelled today to call your Offices and express my disgust at the disgraceful treatment that is being meted out to British citizens whose roots are in Asia, by the small minority of thugs and bully boys who are strangers to the notion of living in harmony. These people do not live in harmony with anyone. Today it is Muslims (or Hindus or Sikhs, because they can't tell the difference), tomorrow it will be citizens of the next nation against which England are playing soccer. They don't even live in harmony with themselves.
I am just an ordinary bloke who is not religious and I can assure you that the vast majority of people like me wish you no ill-will. Many of your people are suffering even worse insults and violence than usual and I want only to express my solidarity with you in these very tense times. It is little consolation, I know, that over the years to come, things will gradually get better. Improvement in race relations is incremental and in my observation, relationships have, on the whole, gradually improved over time in this country. I suppose we all have tribal instincts and the world over there are tensions between the tribes. We simply do not understand each other and there is a lot of mutual fear based solely on the fact that we look or sound different.
I wish I knew how we could rally together other Brits to express to you the goodwill they undoubtedly feel. If this violence was being perpetrated on horses or dogs, there would be half a million people from the Countryside Alliance marching down Whitehall on Sunday. Wouldn't it be nice if we could get, not a half a million Muslims marching in support of Muslims, but half a million others marching in support of Muslims!
I'm rambling on now so I'll stop. Please just accept my bit of moral support. New York was inexcusable. It was the work of disturbed minds, BUT IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT!
I hope all finally goes well for you. Keep your spirits up.
